Amahoro Means Peace "When you look at the images, insert yourself in that moment and believe in the beauty that is portrayed."

Amahoro Means Peace

If you look into her eyes, you don’t just see a woman whom is complying with her daily routine of walking miles to find some clean water.  You don’t see fatigue and anguish. You don’t see brokenness and remorse. In fact, when you look into her eyes, you see Amahoro, and that means Peace. You find deep within, that not only is she a survivor of the 1994 genocide, she is also most joyous and willing.  There’s something special about the Rwandan people, they are recovering from destruction and they find within themselves the ability to persevere and empower others to build a better life for the people around them.
